1 A Very Messy Tea Party A Very Messy Tea Party W.M. Akers If you know anything about English people, you probably know that many of them love tea. Ever since tea was first imported to Great Britain from China, the English have enjoyed a nice, hot cup of strong tea in the afternoon, and in the 1700s, they brought this habit with them to their colonies in North America. In the early 1700s, the British government made a special deal with the East India Company, an English organization doing trade in the East Indies. They agreed that no other company was allowed to sell tea in Britain or its colonies. This is called a monopoly, and it was a great deal for the East India Company, since it meant that the company could charge whatever it wanted for its products. It already cost a lot to get a crate of tea from India to England, and government taxes made the cost of tea even higher. In the British colonies of North America, colonists did not like having to pay such high prices. Rather than overpay for tea from England, they turned to Dutch smugglers, who sneaked in tea that was just as good and much less expensive. A violation of the English monopoly, this was also against the law, but the colonists didn't care. They got the same cup of tea and had enough money left over to buy cookies for dipping. The East India Company, however, didn't like this one bit. By the 1760s, they were losing hundreds of thousands of pounds per year to Dutch smugglers a fortune in a time when 60 a year was considered a good income. Rather than change their prices to compete with the Dutch smugglers, the company asked the British government for help. Parliament agreed and in 1767, passed a law that would change the course of history. A Tax on Tea? With a stroke of the pen, the Townshend Revenue Act raised the prices the colonists paid on all sorts of things. Overnight, lead, glass, paints and paper all became more expensive. But today, the act is best remembered for raising the price colonists had to pay for tea.

2 A Very Messy Tea Party The colonists were outraged, and not just because they had to spend more money at the market. This was the second time the British government had ever directly taxed them after the incredibly unpopular Stamp Act of 1765 and the colonists did not think it was fair. According to the British tradition, a tax could only be enacted or "levied" after elected officials agreed on it. For people living in England, this meant that taxes had to be voted on by Parliament. But the colonists didn't have any representatives in Parliament. They didn't have any representatives at all. The common phrase "No taxation without representation!" became popular then, referring to the government taxing people without their consent. There was no legal way for the colonists to fight back. And so they decided to break the law. The Sons of Liberty With the Tea Act of 1773, Parliament allowed the East India Company to sell tea to the colonists for less money than ever before. With this act, the East India Company was able to cut American merchants out of the picture, selling tea directly to American distributors. Suddenly, English tea was cheaper than smuggled Dutch tea, which should have made the colonists happy. The act, however, had a negative effect on the American economy, which angered the colonists. Moreover, the Townshend tax was still in effect, and colonists didn't want a shilling of their money going toward something they considered unfair. It was a question of principle, and a few colonists in Boston were very principled indeed. In November 1773, the Dartmouth, a tea ship, arrived in Boston harbor, carrying thousands of pounds of discounted, yet taxed tea. But the people of Boston didn't want to buy this tea. They didn't want to drink it. They didn't even want to let it off the ship. Led by Samuel Adams, protestors calling themselves the Sons of Liberty did everything they could to make the captain of the ship turn around and go home. But the British governor would not let the Dartmouth leave. Finally, on December 16 th, a sizeable group of colonists sneaked aboard the Dartmouth disguised as Native Americans. Working quietly, they emptied the holds of the Dartmouth and two other ships that had recently docked in port. Three hundred forty two chests of tea went into the frigid Boston harbor a statement that Britain and the East India Company could not ignore. No matter how cheap the product, if it was taxed, the colonists didn't want it. It was more than two years after the Boston Tea Party that the Declaration of Independence was signed, but once that tea went into the harbor, revolution was assured. The whole course of American history was changed that night and all for a cup of tea.
